This 'President Bannon' Business Is Really Starting to Get to Donald Trump's Head
Alt-nazi Stephen K. Bannon is the chief advisor to the President. He is pure evil. He’s also calling the shots in the White House right now. He is pushing the Trump Administration’s white nationalism agenda, and he was the chief author — along with Richard Spencer protege, Stephen K. Miller — of the Muslim ban executive order. Bannon also put himself on the National Security Council, and apparently, he did so without running it past Donald Trump first, according to the NYTimes:
For the moment, Mr. Bannon remains the president’s dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump’s anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council, a greater source of frustration to the president than the fallout from the travel ban.
Bannon was also on the cover of Time magazine last week. The hashtag #PresidentBannon started trending on a couple of occasions over the course of the week, and over the weekend, Alec Baldwin — impersonating Trump on SNL — gave up the President’s chair to Bannon and took a seat in a child’s desk next to the “President.”
If you don’t think that the perception that Bannon is in control is getting to Donald Trump, then you don’t know Donald Trump very well.
We know, for instance, that he reads the NYTimes, so he’s well aware of the above article. Also, according to Bradd Jaffy, a senior news writer for NBC, this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe — a show we know that Trump watches — Joe Scarborough mentioned the Time magazine cover, showed a clip of Baldwin on SNL, and discussed whether Bannon was “calling all the shots.”
This MJoe segment on Bannon (6:09 a.m.) may have been what set off Trump's “I call my own shots” tweet (7:07 a.m.) https://t.co/DxPddbuWMm— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) February 6, 2017
A few minutes later, Trump tweeted this:
I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 6, 2017
It’s getting to him.
And if you’re like me, and believe that Trump is little more than a bumbling, idiotic con man — and an incompetent one, at that — and that Bannon represents the biggest threat to the United States, then this is a line of attack we have to continue pushing. Trump hates the idea that anyone thinks he’s not in control, and should this narrative take hold, Trump is the kind of person who would fire his chief advisor just to assert his control.
That would be a blessing.
